Author Notes: This is a life saver when you only have a couple of Yukon gold potatoes and little time. These Potato Cups can be filled with anything you'd like and kids will find them fun peeling apart the layers after eating the delicious filling you put inside. I like to filled them with zucchini ribbons and have even filled them with chicken salad. They are a double side dish. —BerryBaby
